Large
Gold/Quartz Specimens Found in Alaska
Click on images for larger pictures



Gold
most commonly comes from quartz veins. Quartz is a very common,
glass-like mineral, and gold is often deposited as chunks and specks
enclosed within the quartz. As the quartz is crushed or decomposed by
erosion processes, the gold is released to become the nuggets and flakes
of gold found by miners. Sometimes large pieces of these quartz veins
are found with gold still enclosed... a future nugget waiting to be
released! These are not gold nuggets but are usually referred to as
gold/quartz specimens. There is no official definition but our
unofficial definition is that the item in question has to look like it
is mostly gold by a pretty good margin. At least 75% of the exposed
surface should be gold, not rock. In other words, is it a rock with gold
in it, or gold with rock in it?

These specimens are
actually rarer than gold nuggets, and prized by collectors as they
illustrate so well an answer to that commonly asked question "where does
gold come from"? If you have found or know of a gold/quartz specimen
over 1 ounce found in Alaska, please let us know at webmaster@akmining.com. We'd
like to add it to our list.

"The NAC Nugget" Found by Dave Rankin at Ganes Creek near McGrath,
Alaska in 2004 with a White's MXT metal detector. The nugget was found
at the end of the runway immediately after some bulldozer work was done
to lengthen the runway. This work was demanded by Northern Air Cargo
(NAC) to accommodate a landing by one of their cargo planes, so Dave
credits them with being a reason the nugget was found.

Dave's nugget had a fresh
break on one end. A few weeks after Dave found the nugget, Gary Cox
located the other piece weighing just over 8 ounces. The nugget was
unfortunately broken when the bulldozer ran over it. The total weight
before it was broken was over 28 ounces.

Large
Gold/Quartz Specimens Found in Alaska
Click on images for larger pictures



Gold
most commonly comes from quartz veins. Quartz is a very common,
glass-like mineral, and gold is often deposited as chunks and specks
enclosed within the quartz. As the quartz is crushed or decomposed by
erosion processes, the gold is released to become the nuggets and flakes
of gold found by miners. Sometimes large pieces of these quartz veins
are found with gold still enclosed... a future nugget waiting to be
released! These are not gold nuggets but are usually referred to as
gold/quartz specimens. There is no official definition but our
unofficial definition is that the item in question has to look like it
is mostly gold by a pretty good margin. At least 75% of the exposed
surface should be gold, not rock. In other words, is it a rock with gold
in it, or gold with rock in it?

These specimens are
actually rarer than gold nuggets, and prized by collectors as they
illustrate so well an answer to that commonly asked question "where does
gold come from"? If you have found or know of a gold/quartz specimen
over 1 ounce found in Alaska, please let us know at webmaster@akmining.com. We'd
like to add it to our list.
